Every year I share some of my favourite gifts I received over Christmas. I think you either love or hate this kind of blog posts. I love reading them and having a good old nosey. But if these blog posts aren’t your thing feel free to scroll past and give this one a miss!
My best friend and I got matching heart-shaped ‘bestie’ keyrings from HA designs over on Instagram. I love everything about them from the nude crocodile print to the gold brush style font. It goes nicely with my ridiculously over-sized fluffy bunny keyring from Topshop! You’d think it would stop me from losing my keys, but nope.
My lovely mum bought me a bottle of YSL Black Opium, one of my favourite fragrances ever. The gift set also came with a couple of handbag sized mini’s, so cute.
My mum also bought me a massive selection of Whittard’s hot chocolate flavours. There’s everything from rocky road, to salted caramel, I can’t pick a favourite I love them all! I mix it with hot milk, top it with a load of whipped cream and marshmallows, they all taste amazing. If you like hot chocolate, you need to try this brand!
My dad always gets me perfume too; I adore Hugo Boss fragrances, I had never tried ‘the scent’ for her it smells incredible. Everyone sort of has a signature scent don’t they? That one perfume that you wear so much it instantly reminds people of you? Mine is Hugo Boss ‘femme’ this must be close to my 10th bottle. Obsessed much? Just a little bit.My dad knows how much I love The White Company, he bought me a beautiful ‘Winter’ gift set, with a candle, room spray and a reed diffuser.
My mum met me in the Metro Centre one day to finish off our Christmas shopping, I went to Debenhams and made a beeline for the Chanel counter as I had been on the hunt for a particular lipstick forever! About 30 minutes later the lady finally found the last one in the bottom of a drawer; it was fate. I was supposed to be keeping it for Christmas, but I was too excited and bought it for myself! It’s the shade 477 in Reveuse, and it is dreamy. The perfect your lips but better tone.
My dad always likes to spoil my brother and me; he still goes over the top despite us being fully grown adults. He surprised me with a new Macbook, and I practically burst into tears because I had no idea he even knew I needed one, how do dads do that?! It is so nice to be able to have a fast laptop that doesn’t take ages to load, my other MacBook which I bought myself almost ten years ago was holding on for dear life. I’d have two tabs open, and it would sound like it was about to explode. (literally)
If you have written a ‘What I got for Christmas’ post, please leave me a link in the comments as I love reading them. I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and ‘Happy New Year’ better late than never, right? Here’s hoping 2018 brings everyone good health and lots of happiness.
